iOne Gemini R16 Keyboard and Mouse Combo ReviewSagittaria - January 30, 2007
Closer Look ContinuedNow for the keyboard:
I love the contrast of black and silver on this keyboard, it gives it a nice professional look that I love. The standard layout is all the same (The letters and number pad) however, the delete key takes up two buttons where the insert key usually is. The insert key is now the delete key, which you will have to push shift to use, a nice idea. The letters on the keys are nice and thick, you can actually feel them. The scroll wheel is nice and solid and the keys on the far right of the keyboard are great! You won't even have to take your hands off the keyboard to copy and paste anymore! The back flip-out raisers are very solid, so it shouldn't break on you. Lastly, there are four LEDs, not three as the box states. The "extra one" being the office lock, which allows you to use the office keys (F1-F12). All in all, the keyboard is nice and solid.
